SEATTLE – Mariners manager Eric Wedge suffered a dizzy spell during batting practice, had to be helped into the dugout by team personnel and was taken to a hospital as a precaution before Monday night’s game against Cleveland.
Wedge was helped off the field about halfway through the M’s hitting session and into the clubhouse. Wedge was feeling better after being checked out in the clubhouse, but the team still decided to have him examined at a hospital. Wedge is expected to return today. Bench coach Robby Thompson served as manager in Monday’s 2-1 win over Cleveland.
